  3. Initial Consultations & Client Selection: What To Ask & What To Look For, NELA 2018 Annual Convention
    The first in-depth interaction with a new potential client, sometimes called an intake interview or an initial consultation, serves multiple purposes: it gives you a chance to evaluate the legal claims the potential client has, whether they’re timely, and what the scope of damages might be; it gives you a sense of what kind of person the potential client is and what they might be like to work with; and it lets you see how the client tells their story and how they might present themselves in court or in a deposition. As you’re trying to learn and assess all of these things during the interview, the potential client has objectives and needs of their own, which may not always coincide smoothly with what you’re trying to get out of the interaction. Our panel of experienced attorneys will provide practical advice about how to structure client consultations to get the information you need to evaluate the legally significant issues in a potential client’s story while also assessing the interpersonal dynamics and potential red flags that may affect the client relationship going forward. The panel will explore common issues that may come up when interviewing potential clients of a different background from one’s own, such as cultural sensitivity, implicit bias, and when an interpreter is appropriate; and will also touch on trauma-informed interview techniques and how to handle the need to ask questions that may make you and/or the potential client feel uncomfortable.

  4. Demystifying The Deposition Process: Advice For New(er) Lawyers On Effectively Taking & Defending Depositions, NELA 2018 Annual Convention
    Depositions are often portrayed as the lynchpin of a successful case: the way to secure that “smoking gun” evidence that will establish liability, bring a defendant to the settlement table, or definitively defeat summary judgment. Placing such high stakes on depositions leaves many newer lawyers feeling intimidated about their ability to live up to the hype, especially if their first few experiences in a deposition don’t yield any case-altering admissions from the other side. This panel—intended for newer lawyers and lawyers new to plaintiffs’ employment law—will take a hands-on, step-by-step approach intended to pull depositions off their pedestal and into the real world. Beginning with a description of how to prepare for a deposition, the panel will also walk through some questioning techniques, how to deal with speaking objections and other obstructionist tactics from opposing counsel, and special considerations for expert and 30(b)(6) depositions. Although the majority of the panel will focus on taking depositions, it will also provide some tips on defending depositions, including preparation of witnesses and how (and whether) to rehabilitate a witness who gives problematic testimony at a deposition.

  5. Deadlines & Administrative Exhaustion, NELA 2018 Annual Convention
    Many employment statutes require administrative exhaustion with state or federal agencies as a prerequisite to filing suit. Missing these deadlines is one of the easiest ways to commit malpractice, and the web of overlapping deadlines and administrative exhaustion requirements can be overwhelming to new lawyers. Our speaker(s) will give an overview of some of the many federal employment statutes that require administrative exhaustion and tips for navigating the web of administrative agencies.
